What is orthognathic surgery?

October 9, 2019

Orthognathic surgery is an operation to reposition the jaws within the face.

The operation aims to improve the gap between the lower and upper jaws, which will enable the teeth to bite together better. This also has the benefit of balancing your facial appearance.

Most patients are delighted with the results, and although there may be some difficult times during the treatment, once it is over the benefits are often significant.
